  2. Placing Illustrator file from libraries to allow me to select which artboard I want to place

    I have a few Illustrator files that have multiple artboards that I use frequently. I want to be able to drag the Illustrator file from the libraries panel and then be able to select which artboard from the Illustrator file I want to place.

  3. Adobe Fonts Auto Activation/Deactivation

    As a printing company, I have a wide variety of customers using a wide variety of fonts including ones that are part of an Adobe CC subscription. When I open an InDesign file that uses Adobe (online) fonts, give us a preference setting to auto-activate those online Adobe fonts AND to deactivate those fonts when the InDesign file is closed. I can't have a bunch of fonts activated all the time as they COULD interfere with an older version of the font causing type reflow!

  4. Open cloud file indicator

    When working at Creative Cloud group it would be useful to know if the document is open to another member of the group. The Up to Date symbol could indicate whether the document is open.

    If the documents are open at the same time, there will be a conflict and the things done will not be in the same document.

  5. Bring back sync settings

    Indesign needs to bring back the Sync Settings feature. Trying to recreate my workspaces and other settings when I get a new computer is such a hassle. Why would Adobe provide a really useful feature like sync settings and then take it away? With all of the resources of Creative Cloud, sync settings should be at the top of the list for Adobe.

  6. Add Creative Cloud Libraries to InCopy

    InCopy users would find CC Libraries very useful in many situations. Why aren't they part of the CC Library party?

    They could import selected graphics from a shared CC Lib to the story (as anchored graphics), same as they can Place them now. They could use them to bring in boilerplate text via linked InDesign text. They could use them to add styles to their standalone InCopy docs (eg, the body style for the INDD file the story will be flowed into). I'm sure there are more uses!

  7. Bring back the Sync Preferences and settings feature

    To get a space the way you want it takes time and effort. To not be able to save and sync our preferences after being able to in the past is like someone coming in your office and taking their hand and raking everything off your desk.... only that would take less time to put back in place than setting up your workspaces in InDesign/ Illustrator/ Photoshop. Going through and setting up your settings and preferences is a hassle but then having to recreate all the template presets on top of it, that is just too much. I thought the…

  8. Better collaboration between InDesign and Lightroom

    For creating photo-books, magazines, or any piece of work which includes photographs, much better collaboration between InDesign and Lightroom should be possible. The ability to view Lightroom collections from inside InDesign, drag and drop into ID, and have those pictures refresh themselves automatically (if they are further edited in LR). I know this could be complex from an export perspective, but the LR book plugin (however basic it is) manages it.

  9. Saved searches in CC Libraries

    It would be great to be able to share searches via CC libraries, for example GREP searches in InDesign are extremely usable but not all users have the knowledge to create them. To be able to share them with your team would be very useful

  10. sort by name in CC library groups

    It would be nice to be able to sort by name when library items are in a folder group in CC libraries. Currently that option is grayed out for the group view, but not for the view by type view.

  11. Allow batch renaming of CC Library items

    I would like to be able to batch rename items in my CC library. For example search for all items with "_sym" in them and delete that part of the name.

  12. Save CC prefs across devices

    Seems pretty basic: remember my CC app prefs as soon as I login. So if I get a new computer and login, I don't accidentally download all apps in a language different to what my language setting was on the old machine.

  13. Options dialog for Place from CC Library

    Implement a possibility to choose how to import .ai items from Library. Now there is no dialog or options for this at all.
    If your item has transparency Indesign uses import setting from last imported .ai object and provides no way to choose this for the current one. So if you want to change it you have to import no-matter-which .ai from local computer -> set desired transparency background option -> import your item from library.
    This workaround is absolutely not obvious, thanks for Adobe forums it posted there (from year 2016).

  14. Drag text to library and create a link

    When I drag`n`drop a text to the library-panel there is is NO link betrween the textframe and the library-item.
    I have to delet the textframe and drag´n´dop it back to the document to create a link.

    Is that smart?

    I wish I could drag a text to the library and create a link in one step.

  15. Adobe's Collaborate should alert user when someone else is viewing/ editing the file

    InDesign Files shared with team members through Adobe's Collaborate features do not alert users when someone else is viewing/ editing a file. Instead, conflicted copies are created.

    A team member opening a file someone else is viewing / editing should see an alert to avoid the creation of conflicting copies / improve collaboration.

    Without this, our team is unlikely to use Adobe's Collaborate feature.

  16. I want to be able to use INDD CC 14 on my Windows 8 Computer

    I'm a Creative Cloud subscriber and I'm using INDD for some of my clients as a translator. Now I need to use CC 14 but I cannot update to that version because I'm using a computer with Windows 8. Actually I do not need Windows 10. I want to use the latest INDD version on my computer. I hope you allow subscribers like me to use the latest versions soon.
    Kind regards

  17. ownership of libraries to the team and global changes

    Libraries; Now at the center of every well organized team... but when a team member leaves, every «owned» libraries are deleted... so all the standardized color swatch of a client are gone for the remaining members... PLUS would be great to have a chart of 30 clients and add/remove one new/old user to those 30 libraries at once ! libraries are great; adobe please make them greater :)

  18. enable paragraph style groups to be added to CC libraries

    Can you create the ability to group paragraph styles in CC libraries as they can in an InDesign file or template.
    The idea is to have various groups of styles that apply to different document types that we create, and be able to share these across users in the company.

  20. CC Libraries and data merge

    Please enable @datafields to work with asset names in CC libraries or at least open up the CC Libraries to scripting the way normal Libraries are. I have client assets spread over several libraries and the ability to add them programatically on/after a datamerge in some way would be invaluable.
